This pendant is one of a series of unique collaborative works containing New Zealand Pounamu cabochons.
The Pounamu cabochon was carved by New Zealand carver Nick Spicer Balme.
I handcut this sterling silver Seed of Life design using a tiny sawblade, (no casting or laser cutting!), and set a beautiful Pounamu cabachon onto it using a lotus claw setting.
This piece is 3cm in diameter, and is hung on a 45cm long sterling silver chain.
The Flower of Life is an ancient geometrical design based around the circle. It contains ancient, theological value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. In this sense, it is a visual expression of the connections life weaves through all sentient beings, and it is believed to contain a type of Akashic Record of basic information of all living things. In sacred geometry the circle represents the sphere in 2 dimensions. It is the most universal symbol known to man and the ultimate representation of the unity and inseparability of all things. The Flower of Life pattern uses Pi to create the perfect balancing of spheres with sixfold symmetry. The centre of each circle is on the circumference of the six surrounding circles of the same diameter.
